Wondered if anyone could help me with this. For last year i have had pain and stiffness in hands,fingers wake in the night and they are clenched and painful to straighten. joint pain and stiffness also in elbows knees,hips and shoulders. Have had blood tests done and xray on hands all have came back normal. The only thing that came up 6 months ago was vit D deficiency after taking supplements since then this is now normal but still the same joint wise. All Dr has said is wear and tear arthritis and to just take pain killers and exercise this was on e telephone appointment got the feeling i was being fobbed off with this especially in multiple joints all coming down with wear and tear at same time! I am 52 and seems odd that this would happen to as many joints at same time. thanks in advance for any replies.
